Ireland – November 2014 rainfall.

As part of my research project at Deltares, I am currently working on a flood forecasting system for Ireland and specifically the Suir river. For that, I am using re-analysis rainfall data from the Irish Meteorological Service. In the video below, you can take a look inside a flood forecasting and early warning system. It displays the way precipitation unfolded in November 2014, one of the wettest months in Ireland’s climatological history which was subsequently followed by severe flooding throughout the entire country and especially the town of Clonmel where river Suir navigates into.
